Now this little beauty would be absolutely perfect if I were prone to wearing only black, had a permanent glower on my face, and enjoyed listening to Death Metal and Radiohead. In such a case this lamp would perfectly summarize my miserable/angry approach on life and symbolize how society makes one become disaffected with basic realities such as life and death. Ohhhh.
It would basically be perfect for any brooding teen then, and there’s something about this design that could probably see them through their college years as well. ‘Look how dark he is’, girls will whisper ‘He’s so troubled and deep…’. I doubt the creator envisaged that the owner might use this lamp to pull, but hey, its good to be open minded right?
